I'm looking to get a MacPro and while I think I'm on the right track I'm not certain and would appreciate any advice. I need it for : 1/ Work - Windows based trading software (tradeStation,esignal) + Brokerage software + Browser open (occasionally skype as well) + dual monitors in use. 2/ Daily general computing - surfing the net, amateur photography, music, email, etc.. 3/ Gaming. I plan in using VMware or Parallels (not sure which one) while working, OS X for the daily stuff and Boot Camp while gaming. I should be looking at a Quad-Core 2.93 and not the 8-Core one, right ? I should get minimum Ram and upgrade with OWC, right ? I should just stick with the 4870 for now, right ? Thanks in advance.
